The tours were great it was extremely hot and the bus tour was airconditioned but also interesting and informative. the guide pointed out interesting things we could do around the city and answered any questions we had. after the city tour they dropped off anyone not taking another tour and then took us to the harbor tour and dropped us off right at the sidewalk that leads to the tour told us exactly where to go to get our ticket with the voucher she gave us. the harbor tour was great very cool on a hot day they took us around the harbor and gave us alot of history about the area and we also saw dolphins. the guide also gave us a sticker for our shirts so when we were done we could go to the tour bus sent to pick us up. the bus was waiting on us when we got to the pickup point. I would recommend taking the grey line tours if we had taken the tour earlier in our stay we would have booked some of their other tours it was also a really reasonable price for both tours. the only thing I would change would be being able to have the option to add other tours to the package so you could book them all at once. they also have plenty of paid parking in the alley beside the bus shed and a parking deck across the street which is where we parked because it was cooler and shaded.
